Star Wars Celebration 2017 Exclusive 0-0-0 (Triple Zero) & BT-1 ARTFX+
A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Activated by Doctor Aphra and under the service of Darth Vader the assassin Droids known as 0-0-0 (Triple Zero) & BT-1 appear for the first time in the ARTFX+ series! Programed in the art of “etiquette and torture” this dastardly duo wreaks havoc (and incinerations) across the galaxy!

Triple Zero stands just over 6 ½ inches tall while BT-1 stands 4 ½ inches tall in 1/10th ARTFX+ scale. Magnets in their feet provide the perfect stability on the included metal display bases. As with other Celebration exclusives this release also includes a special commemorative collector’s coin. And as an extra special bonus to this set only, a 10” x 8” print is included in the box with exclusive artwork by acclaimed artist Adi Granov!

R5-D4 stands 4 ½ inches tall in 1/10th ARTFX+ scale. Magnets in its feet provide the perfect stability on the included metal display bases. As with other Celebration exclusives this release also includes a special commemorative collector’s coin.

The traditional bottle of champagne has been broken on the bow of the latest addition the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series fleet and The Devastator has been officially launched. As a LEGO Star Wars fan and collector, how do you feel about this new UCS set?
Love it - definitely going to add one to my cart!
Wow - makes me wish I'd signed up to the VIP Rewards programme now!
It's great - now isn't the right time, but it's on my list!
I'm economising - will get it on clearance.
Not for me - too big/too expensive/too grey.
